His candidacy had surprised more than one. But according to our colleagues from France Bleu Gard Lozère, Emmanuel Spanish is finally “disinvested” from his candidacy for the legislative elections in the 5th constituency of Gard. Another candidate, Alexandre Allegret-Pilot, obtained, in extremis, the investiture ofEric Ciottithe president of the Republicans (LR), and the support of the National Rally (RN) on this constituency.

In its quest for respectability, the RN undoubtedly did not want to take the risk of electing a candidate who was the subject of an investigation ordered by the Prosecutor’s Office of Compiègne for “organized gang fraud”.

Sandrine Dauchellethe mayor of Noyon (LR), is also at the heart of this investigation carried out by the gendarmes of the search section from Amiens.

One of the LR strategists in Oise

In Oise, Emmanuel Espanol is best known for having partly orchestrated the right-wing campaign during the 2015 departmental elections. He also helped Philippe Marini (LR) during the 2020 municipal elections, for example. Philippe Marini also described him as a “great professional” during a press conference in 2022.

Emmanuel Espanol also boasts of having allowed Sandrine Dauchelle to access the chair of mayor of Noyon, in 2020 then in 2021. He was also his first chief of staff…
